Neurosciences have been a core research field in Magdeburg and at the OVGU since its inception in 1993. Historically, the early neuroscientific works of the former Medical Academy Magdeburg (MAM) in the 1960’s paved the way to establishing a node for neuroscience research in Magdeburg, which is now driven in close collaboration between the OVGU and the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology (LIN).

As early as 2004, the state of Saxony-Anhalt has identified neuroscience research in Magdeburg as one of the key research areas worthy of special funding as part of the state directive for excellent research. As of 2007, the CBBS is representing this key research area.

The CBBS is a cross-faculty unit at the OVGU in close collaboration with the LIN, aiming to educate the next generation of neuroscientists and to facilitate interdisciplinary research in all fields of basic and translational neuroscience.

Researchers within the CBBS are associated with one of seven OVGU faculties (medicine, natural sciences, electrical engineering & information technology, human sciences, computer science, economics and management, and mathematics), the LIN or the DZNE Magdeburg and collaborate across institute and discipline borders.
